Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, believed that part of running a good business was doing good for society. This promise has guided our company for over a century. And it remains our promise to create better days, and a good and just world, for years to come.
Kellogg’s Better Days is our promise to advance sustainable and equitable access to food by addressing the intersection of wellbeing, hunger, sustainability, and equity, diversity and inclusion.
Sustainability, hunger, wellbeing and equity, diversity and inclusion are all interconnected. Our changing climate is impacting the health of people and reducing crop yields, leading to greater food insecurity. Many diverse and underserved communities are disproportionally impacted by climate change and now face higher barriers to health and access to nutritious foods. And these same communities are most at risk for hidden hunger as well as obesity.
For these reasons, one of the ways we are achieving our Kellogg’s™ Better Days Promise is by feeding 375 million people in need through food donations and supporting children through feeding programs by the end of 2030.
How Kellogg is feeding people in need
According to the World Food Programme, the world produces enough food for everyone. Yet, the most recent estimates show that the number of people affected by hunger globally rose to as many as 828 million in 2021—an increase of about 46 million since 2020 and 150 million since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.* That’s why we continue to take steps to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #2 – Zero Hunger, and collaborating with others around the world to do our part to help “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by the end of 2030.”
